With more people out shopping, thieves are out in numbers too. And with our though turned to finding the perfect gift, it makes it easier for a thief to rob you in plain sight. However there is a simple security mechanism you can employ to keep your handbag safe. When using a shopping cart as you browse through the store, keep your purse zipped or closed and secure it to the cart by clipping the child safety belt through the strap(s). This will help in preventing someone from taking advantage of your distraction and running off with the purse. It is super simple, and it only takes a few seconds to do. If your cart doesn't have a belt, you can improvise your own device with an inexpensive carabiner clip. Besides closing and securing your purse, make sure you are staying alert of your surroundings, park in well-lit areas, hide shopping bags in your trunk, carry as little cash as possible and notify your credit card company immediately if your card is lost or stolen.
